Welp, being from Canada I really wasn't interested in football at a young age as hockey has always been the main sport in my life. Until 2000 I lived out West and the only games I usually found on local stations were of the Redskins which bored me to tears so even though I followed the NFL and always caught the highlights, I wasn't a devout follower by any means.

In 2000 I moved out East and immediately found both Buffalo and New England games on local stations. I eventually began to watch these regularily and by the middle of that season I was hooked on the Pats and watched the Bills only to cheer on a loss

It just so happens that 2000 was the year Belichick took over and the following year was the first of their dynasty. In a way I wish I had been a bigger fan of the game and the team prior to my moving out East as it's sad to have missed out on some of the team's history since my birth. However, I am now a proud Pats fan and have undyingly supported the team since my move. Since 2000 I've missed maybe 3-5 games, and only because I wasn't able to get a feed on TV or the radio.

At times it's rough as people most often associate Patriots' fans, at least here in Canada, with a team like the Yankees. They call you "bandwagon jumpers" and such for cheering for a strong team. Regardless, I'm not the kind of person to choose a strong team and drop them the second they look weak. I've been cheering for the Patriots for over six years now and that would not have changed if they'd posted 3-13 seasons every year since 2000.

This being my first post, and I think being an appropriate place to make it, I'd like to say hello to all fellow Pats fans on this forum

Hello!

It seems to be the trend to make your first post in this section, so here I am!

I'm a Pats fan from Manchester, England, and have been a fan since I bought Madden NFL on the Sega MegaDrive (Genisis) back in the 1990's. Only really started following the game closely the last 3 years or so.

I wish there was an interesting story as to why I chose the Pats, but it is as simply because the team has England in the name! ( I was only 10, bless me!)

Anyway, over the last couple of years, I've been trying to learn more and more about the game, and hope to learn more about the ins-and-outs of the sport from this Forum.

Nice to see a good win over the Jets last night! Can't wait to get home today and watch the game back. Look out Chargers! :Patriots:

Worzel, good team to learn the game by watching, Pats are a Team orientated team, so you learn the proper way the game should be built, played and maintained.

Welcome aboard

So were you a fan of the England Monarchs?

I first became a patriots fan just recently. I think it was week 3 or something like that when they faced the broncos and I started watching patriot games. That and also my friends were on a junior high football team and I would play football everyday at the park near my house after school. And now I watch any football games possible on Saturday, Sunday, Monday, and thursday. I watch NFL Network all day long.....even if I've already watched the same NFL Gameday four times. And I watch NFL Replay too much. So now I love football.

This is my first post ... I've been reading the forum all week and I think it's fantastic. When I saw Payton Manning morphed into Brahmanning I was blown away ... that's in the Karma thread, which is a brilliant concept.

I became a fan in 1978 when I was a freshman at Bryant College ... I was devastated by the Red Sox and happened into the bar on campus and got caught up in the enthusiasm for the Patriots. Nobody took them seriously out in Western Mass where I lived ... everyone was either a Bills fan or a Jets fan or something ... (we have a lot of Yankee fans too.) In Rhode Island they loved the Pats ... there were always busses going to the games and you just had to give them a few bucks, catch the bus in Cranston, and they sat you in the end zone next to the handicapped section. My first game we beat the Jets and the handicapped section starting banging on their wheelchairs making a magnificent noise! When I saw that I knew that being a Pats fan was something good ... but I never dreamed back then that it could ever be like this.

I ended up going into the Army in 1980 and lost track of the Patriots until I ETSed in 1984. I couldn't believe that the Patriots were actually playing football in the same class as the great teams ... when they went to Miami and won, I was stupid happy, running around the streets to Amherst like an idiot. What a great day! The first of many.

I was born in Boston and lived in Braintree with my parents until I was 3 at which point we moved to California (East Bay of San Francisco). My Dad grew up in Worcester/Shrewsbury and my Mom was born in Brooklyn, grew up in NJ but went to school at BU so she has always had a special connection to Boston (she lived in the dorms that faced Nickerson field BTW). I now live near Los Angeles.

Growing up (about the same time as TB - he is 3/4 years younger than me and grew up on the other side of the SF Bay) I was a 49ers fan - not a hard thing to be when Montana was QB. Technically I was actually closer to Oakland, but was never one for the whole Raiders image. I was an A's fan though. I was never an athlete and still don't thoroughly understand all the ins and outs of the games but really love watching the games and feel passionate about the team.

Interestingly, there is an exclusive gated area in the town I grew up in where many athletes live (Madden bought two houses there - one for him and one for his son and surrounded them both with one fence). Jose Canseco was another famous (now infamous?!) resident; his then-wife Esther was always getting into trouble at one of the high end gyms for sunbathing nude at the pool and other related antics (sorry no pics!). I can remember some Father/Son dinners at my elementary school where Ronnie Lott came one year and Dwight Clark came another (I think Roger Craig came one year too, but am not sure).

I vaguely remember watching the Bears/Pats Super Bowl, but I have clearer memories of the 9ers games. I really got into the Pats when they made their way to Super Bowl XXXVI. I remember watching it at the house of a friend who was die hard Rams fan, and something about the experience turned on my inner fan. When I got my HD TV a couple years ago my interest in the Pats (and watching other football games) was further cemented and, despite only having cable and being subjected to the random schedules of the major networks, I watch every game I can. I also now work with a woman from Weymouth and we compare notes every Monday. I am not much into other sports, but something about the Patriots lights me up.

I feel a sense of connection to them considering I was born in Boston, but also really respect the earnest and sincere way they work for every yard and, even without huge superstar players, always seem to make impressive plays. I also feel some kinship with TB seeing as we grew up near each other rooting for the same football team. More recently, as a doctoral student in organizational leadership, I am thoroughly impressed with how the entire organization operates (reading James Lavin's book now) - even though they are totally classless of couse . So while I came a little late to the party I am here to stay.

Basically I have been following the Pats
since the beginning - 1960
I still remember how disappointed I was with the end result of that first Championship game against San Diego.
First season I went to two or three games
at different stadiums in Boston.
For me its been a (going on) 50 year
relationship, and I look forward to another
Super Bowl Game this year. !

I've been in PP for a couple of years and yet never posted in this thread. I became a fan of the Patriots at the end of the '99 Red Sox season.

Before 1999, I used to hate sports but I went to my first Fenway Park game and fell in love with it and enjoyed the '99 Red Sox season even though I was destated with the results.

During the Red Sox off-season, I was bored so I started to watch the Celtics, Bruins, BC sports, and of course Patriots. I've hardly missed any games in the last couple of years and learned a lot.

I'm a huge fan and can get into a lot of arguments over my favorite teams but I love every minute of being a fan of the Boston sports teams.

I have been a Patriots fan my entire life (31 years). It's the only sports team around that I really, truly care about. Patriots football is my passion. I love watching them, talking about them, following them, seeing them live, buying merchandise anything Patriots, watching old highlights, and of course Gillette Stadium. I have attended numerous games with my father over the years and we usually go to 1 road game per season as well.

I have Patriots socks, boxer shorts, drink sleeves (cozie), throw blankets, night lights, shirts of players, T-shirts, sweat shirts, pillows, car seats, dozens of bumper stickers on my car, DVDs, posters, memorabilia, a Patriots football, mousepad, and I even have a 3-numbered Patriots license plate. Did I mention the 50+ Patriots hats that I own?

It's in my blood, and I will instill this into my new born son, just as my father did to me. I am a Patriots junkie! :Patriots: :Patriots: :Patriots:

I am more partial to the old retro Pat the Patriot, and have many items with that logo, but we did appear in 4 SBs and won 3 with the new Elvii look. ;)

There typically isn't a day that goes by where I don't wear something Patriots.

The night light on top I got for X-MAS. The one on the bottom I have had since I was 5 years old (25 yrs ago) and it still works great.

Born and raised and still live in Cleveland. Was a Browns fan when I was a kid, and was very excited when they hired Belichick as HC because I loved to watch the NYG defense (LT was one of my favorite players then). Kind of lost track of the NFL for awhile when in college, and was later just more of an overall fan of the sport itself, no team loyalty. When the Pats hired Belichick in 2000, I started following them because I realized what a raw deal he got from Modell ("Modell" is still a 4-letter word in Cleveland- ) and I wanted to see how he did in NE. Though I admit I was upset when he cut Kosar, I realize he was 100% right. That's why when he picked Brady over Bledsoe in 2001 and he cut Milloy in '03, I never thought either was wrong...I had precedence to believe Belichick was right.

Born to it as a native New Englander. Started paying attention in '73, loved them ever since. Anybody who hates them now because of their success obviously has no idea how long this is in coming.

I don't remember. Seriously, I don't. I was raised on Boston Sports and that's just how I am. I don't remember the first Patriot's game I watched on TV but I know I watched both The NE/Miami playoff game in '85 and the SB in '85. I remember my mother bought me a "We've Squished the Fish--Now Bury the Bears!" T-shirt. Wish I still had it.

I remember being less than excited when the Pats went 1-15. I don't remember seeing many games on TV for obvious reasons. I remember thinking Leonard Russell was at least entertaining. I thought he was good but what would I know, I was very young and impressionable. And maybe he was, I still haven't really found out

I remember the tide turning vaguely. Personally I was excited when the Parcells/Bledsoe era began. I bought into the hype immediately and was hooked. I've followed as much as possible ever since.

I can't claim hardhsip like many folks here but I've witnessed this team play miserably and seen some low points. I love the current run of success and try to cherish it as much as possible because it ain't gonna be here forever. All good things must come to an end.

1978....Started playing football that year. One of our coaches told us to watch the Patriots to learn more about the game of football. (never liked watching football before then) He told us to watch the guys playing our positions. Watched them play for a few weeks and got hooked.
